This may be beyond the capabilities of JavaScript but I thought I would ask anyway.

This plugin does not work in Internet Explorer because I believe it sends the output as a data URI (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_URI_scheme).

From what I read here (http://www.jquerybyexample.net/2012/10/export-table-data-to-excel-using-jquery.html ), IE requires a response header. Is it possible to generate a header on the client side in some way so this plugin works for IE? There is a solution here (http://www.jquerybyexample.net/2014/04/export-table-to-excel-jquery-ie.html ) but is a server side solution.

Maybe a post in the links above could provide a workable client side solution? A reply from David Rainsford here (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/393647/response-content-type-as-csv ) looks interesting.

I can confirm this is the case with IE 11

For the sake of documentation, solutions that DON'T work: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26745717/exporting-an-excel-file-works-in-everything-except-ie-want-to-use-javascript-p

And it's an IE thing; someone would have to modify the plugin to sniff for the UserAgent (since IE killed conditional comments with IE10+,) and use something totally different for IE.

Very good plugin, however for someone who really required the support of excel for ie9, there is a jqwidget plugin that works, but i am not sure how they do it.

@ilaxmidhar they do it not on client side. They create the stuff on the server itself.

So as a workaround you could send the base64 content back to your server that creates the download file. bad solution but a solution.
